What People are Saying

About Scripture’s Grand Story Through the Old Testament:

Bill T. Arnold

Asbury Theological Seminary

“Beyer and Jones are great storytellers, and they have turned their attention here to the greatest story of all. The result is a volume that will help the rest of us hear the grand story afresh and learn to appreciate it better for the way it saves and changes lives.”

Mark A. Smith

Columbia International University

“Scripture’s Grand Story Through the Old Testament is a fascinating overview of each book of the Old Testament. As readers desire to understand the masterpiece of God’s work, this Bible tool will present an outstanding review of each book. Beyer and Jones share their insights in an organized and prolific way.”

Ralph E. Enlow Jr.

International Alliance for Christian Education

“In our era of well-documented and widely bemoaned biblical illiteracy, Beyer and Jones have determined not merely, as it were, to curse the darkness but instead to light a candle. The Old Testament’s structure and literary diversity are illuminated clearly and cogently so that those unfamiliar with or intimidated by the Bible can elicit its meaning, embrace its central character, and enter into his global mission.”

Brad Cooper

NewSpring Church

“This is an exceptional resource and tool for your everyday relationship with Jesus. As you journey through this book, you will come to a greater understanding of Scripture and your place in God’s story.”
